why visit

The Alzheimer’s Show is your gateway to obtaining expert advice and support, enabling you to develop a broader understanding of the disease, as well as the help available.

This two-day event is the UK’s only live resource dedicated to providing information and advice as well as showcasing products to help those with dementia. Come along and meet Admiral Nurses, who are specially trained to provide much-needed practical advice, attend seminars on a range of topics including coping with memory loss, challenging behaviours, Lasting Power of Attorney, how dementia affects family life and the latest research news.

Learn why regular exercise and good nutrition are so important for those with dementia, and also talk to a range of exhibitors including care home owners, home care agencies, and discover dementia-friendly products intended to make the home safer and more manageable for those with dementia.

Whether you are a professional, family carer or member of the public concerned about dementia, this event is your one-stop shop to finding the information, support and products you need. Our goal is for you to leave the show with a clearer understanding of dementia, as well as the appropriate knowledge and support you need to plan for the future.
